Hi and Ho, We Plant Trees


Published March 17, 2008


This album is a collection of old and new songs done by treeplanters, about treeplanting, and for the most part, for other treeplanters.


Not that everyone isn't welcome to bask in our nostalgia, but to truly appreciate these tunes, one must actively take part in this silvi-culture.  Other than a few exceptions, the artists who took part are veterans of the Canadian planting scene.  These campfire classics are inspired by long days out on the "block", working through the bugs and the rain and the difficult terrain and then coming back to camp, hot food, showers, and the companionship of the other boys and girls who help replant our country's vast forests every Spring/Summer. 


Below you'll find the album of course, as well as a photo gallery from Hugh Stimson, a planting slang dictionary if the need arises to look up a word or phrase while listening to the songs, and also you'll find links to some other websites if you want to read further.  And if you're really curious... come join us in the bush next season!
